Calcified pancreatic and peripancreatic neoplasms: spectrum of pathologies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A variety of pancreatic and peripancreatic neoplasms may contain calcifications. We present a review of common to uncommon pancreatic neoplasms that may contain calcifications to include ductal adenocarcinoma, pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, serous cystadenomas, solid pseudopapillary tumors, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms, mucinous cystic neoplasms, and lymphoepithelial cysts. In addition, duodenal mucinous adenocarcinoma can present as a peripancreatic mass that may contain calcification. Knowledge of the spectrum of calcification patterns can help the interpreting radiologist provide a meaningful differential.
